Campbell, who has kept details surrounding her children, a girl and a boy, very private since announcing their arrivals in 2021 and 2023, also discussed the impact of being a mother has had on her.

"My babies are everything to me. It's made me fear for the future," Campbell told the outlet. "I hope for a better world for my children. They are 110 percent my priority. I have to be there for them on their first day at school."

Despite starting her career at a very young age, when it comes to her own kids, Campbell said, "I'm not sure I would let her start working at 15. It's a ruthless world."

"I have said, 'You will change your mind. You will want to be a mum,'" she explained. "I understand [that] economically it is tough. But my mum had nothing and she made it work. It's worth it. It is so amazing."

Campbell welcomed her first child, a daughter in 2021 and she announced the arrival of her second child, a son in 2023.

In an interview with British Vogue in 2022, she told the outlet that she "always knew that one day I would be a mother."

"It's the biggest joy I could ever imagine," she said at the time. "It's the best thing I've ever done."
